  • Hosting Food Drives
  • Making Food Pick-ups
  • Facility Maintenance

Junior Volunteer Program 

 - Children 6 to 17 years of age -

We believe in the importance of children learning how to give back to their communities.  For this reason we established a junior volunteer program, Operation No Starvation, specifically designed for children ages 6 to 17. For more information about this unique and growing program click on the Services tab located on the menu bar.

Volunteer applications are available for pick up at St. Mary's Caring Soup Kitchen by appointment only.  

All food-service volunteers also are required to attend a St. Mary’s County Health Department Food and Safety course within their first 6 months. Certificates are good for two years.

Our services are sustained through generous donations from individuals, organizations and community partners as well as the service of our dedicated volunteers.
